    Default Would a sudden shiny change your team?

    Ok, you've just started your game, you've gotten your pokeballs, and are on your way to the first badge. You are suddenly attacked by a wild pokemon, and it's shiny! You successfully catch it and you feel whatever you would feel if you caught one.

    Now the question comes. If you already had a planned-out team of pokemon you wanted, would you rearrange it to make room for your super-lucky catch?

    For me, I would, and have. Because of two very lucky catches, my FR hall of fame included a shiny Pidgeot and Gengar.

    I do that all of the time. When I first found my shiny Shroomish, I had already caught another Shroomish, but I immediatly traded it in for the shiny. Also, when I found my shiny Abra, I added him onto my team. I did this with countless others as well

    It would depend on the Pokemon. If it was a Bidoof or something hm slave-like, then no I would just catch it.

    Frankly, after I went through all my trouble to train my regular Pokemon, I do not want to just ditch it for some shiny. I got a shiny Zubat, but I still use a regular Crobat because I trained that one up from the beginning of the game.

    You have a point. I guess I wouldn't either if I were in the same situation, but if it was reletively near my team level, I would definately consieder a change, even if it is a bidoof or whatever.

    It would depend on its Evs or IVs. I had a shiny sableye I caught, but it was not great for battling very much so I never changed my team to include it, and it was lv50 like most of my team when I caught it.

    So if it were not that great, I'd catch it, good pokemon, I'd use it in my team. Same as any pokemon really.

    How would it possibly depend on its EVs when all wild Pokémon start with an EV count of zero.

    For me it depends on where at the game I'm at. I trained a shiny Beedrill in Leaf Green because I caught it as a weedle early on. If it was after I beat the Elite 4, it would depend on whether I like it or not.

    Nope. My Pokémon are EV trained. I don't need any of them to be replaced for unnecessary reasons. Besides, we're just talking about alternatively coloured Pokémon. They aren't that big a deal.

    Unless you're into being unique, of course.

    I have to say, all my shiny catches have been after the E-4, so this has never happened to me. But, if something of the sort did happen...

    Hellz yes!

    Something like that happened to me. On my LG, I had raised a Crobat to around level 70 when a shiny Zubat appeared. I wanted the green Zubat, but I didn't want to abandon my Crobat. The solution: I raised both, but with different movesets. They kicked a$$

    Well it would have to depend for me, whether it was a regular shiny of a PokéRadar shiny. If it was a regular 1 in 8192 shiny, then yes, I probably would and if it were a PokéRadar shiny it's probably one I wanted for my team anyways, so...

    Yes.

    Unless it were something that I really liked, I would probably ship it off to the PC, never to be heard from again except for on message boards when I would proclaim "I have a shiny *Pokémon* in *Version*" in those "How many shinies do you have?" threads.

    If it had a good nature or even a decent nature I would use it. For example, my shiny Medicham and Mew are Docile and Mild, respectively, which aren't good natures, but they aren't bad natures either. However, I won't use my shiny Beedrill, Crobat, or Linoone, since their natures are Modest, Calm, and Sassy, respectively.

    It would depend on what the Pokemon was. It would have to be the same kind of Pokemon that I use.
    Gotta catch em all! Venusaur is the best Pokemon ever.

    Chris Brown's R&B is the best.

    When I caught a shiny Rattata in FireRed, I didn't replace my regular Rattata of the same level.

    So no.
